It sucked and blew at the same time. A vapid, soulless, plastic POS with nothing even resembling danger, as the heroes are practically bulletproof.
Explosion goes off two feet beside you? No sweat. Jump out of the way, like it's a minor annoyance. It just becomes tedious. I despise PG-13 action movies, trying to be all dark and nasty, when they're ultimately all mouth a no trousers. Reminded me of that other crap, Knight & Day. People getting the **** knock out of them, but getting up again, like they're made out of rubber. Violence must have ramifications, as far as I'm concerned, or it becomes a cartoon.
Quaid is supposed to be badly injured towards the end, yet he looks like he's scuffed his knee, falling off of a child's roundabout.
The only scene I liked, was
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
when his mate Harry shows up and does the 'this isn't real, you're still strapped into a chair at Rekall' bit.
Like Bryan Cranston's wig, it was pointless and not required.
